    Very interesting; thanks for sharing! I forgot Che's Irish connection, though I have two movies about him and a photograph of him playing chess.

    Yes the iconic image is by Irish artist Jim Fitzpatrick who met Che in Ireland in 1961.

    Really...lol. He does a lot of Celtic designs.
    A lot of people think my name might be James Fitzpatrick or Fitzgerald etc but FitzjamesHorse was the name of an 18th century Franco-Irish cavalry regiment.
